The Great Evolution Gallery is one of the galleries of the National Museum of Natural History (MNHN). The galleries of the Museum are buildings that in themselves constitute museums (they are labeled "Museum of France") and each specializes in a specific area of natural history. The Great Evolution Gallery is located in the southwestern part of the Jardin des Plantes in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, France. Created from the former Zoology Gallery, the Great Evolution Gallery is an exhibition space renovated in 1994 that focuses on the evolution of species and the diversity of the living world and is based on a contemporary scenography of natural history collections of the MNHN. In a reserved space and a twilight atmosphere are presented the extinct or highly endangered species. Another space, more colorful and fun, is specially designed for young children, it is the "children's gallery". Finally the basement is dedicated to temporary exhibitions.
